Overview
Excerpt from Wagner and His Isolde

ON reading, in the German original, the letters and journals relating to one of the most fascinating episodes in Wagner's ca reer, his romance with Mathilde Wesendonk who inspired his Tristan und Isolde, it seemed to me a foregone conclusion that the book would be translated in its entirety. But as a complete translation could result only in a bulky and somewhat expensive publica tion, and as, in my judgment, there were many portions which could be omitted With out lessening its interest for English readers, it appeared feasible to take the most inti mate and striking passages as a basis for a smaller volume. This I have done; and I trust that, With the introduction and the connecting narrative which I have supplied, the story of Wagner and his Isolde has been told Without any serious omissions.
